Eden’s confirmed that it’ll release the first premium DLC for Test Drive Unlimited 2 for free following the intital problems the game faced.

The French developer said the Exploration Pack, which will feature the Lancia Stratos version Rallye and 1969 Dodge Charger, will contain “new wrecks to be discovered.”

Many of the game’s issues that have been fixed include:

  • Logging into the game has been improved
  • Once into the game the online network experience is now much more stable in all areas
  • Save games no longer corrupt
  • Existing corrupted save games will be repaired in many cases
  • Friends lists are now populated
  • Invites now work correctly
  • Clubs have been brought back online
  • Exploits to gain money have been fixed
  • Casino access has been improved
  • Players will no longer lose money because of the Casino bug

All of these issues have now been fixed on the PC version. The patches for the console versions are currently under certification by Sony and Microsoft.

“Our community has been amazing and helped us quickly identify a number of issues, which we have made significant progress in addressing in the upcoming patches,” said Eden in a statement sent by publisher Namco Bandai.

“The team spends a great deal of time looking at community feedback, so please keep posting your comments to the official TDU2 forums and we look forward to seeing you in Ibiza.”

Test Drive Unlimited 2 launched at the start of this month for PS3, 360 and PC. It became Namco Bandai’s first-ever UK number one title.

    I was really tempted to get this on PC with the £25 price tag on steam, but all the talk of the bugs put me right off.

    Might give it another look when the free dlc comes out.

    It is very good if you can get past the bugs, which sometimes you can’t!
    A couple of cars handle strangely, like the FWD Golf that drives like a RWD!

    One question though, so this tittle now is worthy of a purchase, with all the previous mentioned bugs being fixed, and the free DLC?
